Being in Ireland only a short time one learns to always carry rain gear! The day our tour group visited the Cliffs of Moher began overcast and mist rain. But as we approached the cliffs the rain did stop but the clouds did remain. No matter we did get to climb both sides of the magnificent Cliffs of Moher with the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. The approach is well laid out with a rock path to follow and some rock steps. This is a safe climb although it does go up in altitude. Along with the beautiful ocean you will find pastures on both sides where sheep, goats and cattle are grazing. I am sure in wild flower season you would find a beautiful landscape of flowers. After we climbed both sides of the cliffs we entered into the museum area. It is well laid out and has a gift shop, water and restrooms.

We then rode to an area called The Burren. This area is night and day from the cliffs. The rolling green hills slowly diminish and in their place there are small rocks and dirt. The landscape is very flat but the history is fascinating. Upon a short walk from the motorcoach you will see a monument of time. Thousands of years ago this area was used as a burial ground. Large bolders mark the area of the tomb.

Both areas are totally worth your time and effort to visit and enjoy.

With its view to the Atlantic and the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Moher is one of those very special places that must be visited on a trip to Ireland. The abruptness, the color of the rock, the views, all make this place very special. And though it can be overwhelmed by tourists, it is well worth the trouble.

My family and I visited the Cliffs of Moher and the surrounding areas last weekend. Having visited the cliffs on foot before we decided to take a boat trip just to get a different perspective. There are multiple trips on offer from the pier in Doolin. So we headed out on Saturday afternoon at 1.30. The trip takes around an hour but honestly the views are breathtaking. We were fortunate it was a calm day and the boat went very close to the cliffs which are much more impressive form the sea.Well worth a visit. We also toured the surrounding areas by car,the costal drive is spectacular and the landscape so alien it is like walking on the surface of another planet. Highly recommended.

Well worth a visit. Very harsh and rugged landscape but beautiful. Rug up warm as it was very cold. Great gift shop with some different items to the usual tourist stuff. There is a cafe but we drove on for another five minutes to Liscannor, found a great local pub called Vaughans.
